I am a member of the Social Studies Department currently in my nineteenth year at FTF. The courses I teach are American History: Founding Principles, Civics, and Economics, AP United States Government and Politics, and AP Human Geography. Beginning in the spring of 2019 I am also teaching Sociology through the Online Catawba program
Born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana but proud to call Catawba County home for the past 22 years.
My goal each class period is to engage students in an organized and enthusiastic way so as to inspire a love of learning about government and civic participation. I find the various views of young people to be refreshing and welcome open conversation about difficult topics facing our nation. It is my hope that students will feel empowered and moved to action around the causes which they are most passionate.
